The SOLIDWORKS application defaults to the last used arc type. The Arc PropertyManager controls the following properties of a sketched Centerpoint Arc, Tangent Arc, or 3 Point Arc. The Arc PropertyManager controls the following properties of arcs in a 3D sketch.

## What is tangent arc in SOLIDWORKS?

SOLIDWORKS infers from the pointer motion whether you want a tangent or normal arc. There are four intent zones, with eight possible results as shown. Moving the pointer in a tangent direction creates a tangent arc. Moving the pointer in a normal direction creates a normal arc.

## How do you add arc length in SOLIDWORKS?

To create arc dimensions:

- In an open sketch, click Smart Dimension (Dimensions/Relations toolbar) or Tools > Dimensions > Smart.
- Select the arc.
- Press Ctrl and select the two arc endpoints.
- Move the pointer to show the dimension preview.
- Set the value in the Modify dialog box and click .
- Click to place the dimension.

## What is required for a tangent arc?

When an arc is tangent to a circle, its center must be the radius distance away from that circle.

## What is SpeedPak solidworks?

SpeedPak creates a simplified configuration of an assembly without losing references. If you work with very large and complex assemblies, using a SpeedPak configuration can significantly improve performance while working in the assembly and its drawing.

## What are the types of fillet in Solidworks?

Types of Fillets

Constant Radius Fillet | Multiple Radius Fillet | Round Corner Fillet |

Setback Fillet Full Round Fillet | Variable Radius Fillet | Face Fillet |

## What is split line solidworks?

The Split Line. tool projects an entity (sketch, solid, surface, face, plane, or surface spline) to surfaces, or curved or planar faces. It divides a selected face into multiple separate faces. You can split curves on multiple bodies with one command.

## What is arc length dimension?

The Arc Length Dimension tool measures and dimensions the length of an arc anywhere along its circumference. The dimension can be shown with its witness lines perpendicular to a chord on the arc, or perpendicular to a line tangent to the arc.

## What is the difference between chord length and arc length?

So, the difference between chord length and arc length is that chord length gives us the length between two points and an arc length gives us the total portion covered between two points.

## Can this sketch be extruded?

You can extrude base features and other features using Extrude (2D to 3D toolbar) with partial sketches. … Click Extrude (2D to 3D toolbar), or click Tools > Sketch Tools > 2D to 3D > Extrude, and click in the graphics area to establish the direction of the extrusion.

## What does Coradial mean in SolidWorks?

The items lie on the same infinite line. Coradial. Two or more arcs. The items share the same centerpoint and radius. Perpendicular.
